    The spelling would probably be just as good as the original, too.

            I think I'm losing track - didn't they renege on an international treaty so that they could not have a border in the Irish Sea, but instead they're putting one around Kent?

              Kent is the arsehole of the South East so I guess they thought it doesn't matter.

                    More seriously, it appears Gibraltar will treat the UK as a "third country" in the event of "no deal".

                      Ah well, maybe all these bad news are being released now to prepare the country for the ultimate u-turn at the last minute...(I know, I know...)

                        It's terrible how those hauliers have dragged their feet and not made adequate preparations. The poor Government must be tearing their hair out in frustration at the laggardly goings on.

                        For shame, truckers!

                          We've just tarmaced a patch of dead quay space, painted some lines and put up some fancy lighting all paid for thank to HMG. Not sure 20 spaces will be enough.

                          And, an extension until July to get all the Border Force requirements into place. I'm not involved in the higher discussions but it sounds not all cross channel ports will be so lucky.

                                          Or the method used to draw the Irish border in Puckoon; everyone on the border committee grabs hold of the pencil and they collectively draw a line ("Someone's pushing for the benefit of Ulster!").

                                            Heh. Was talking yesterday to my friend Brian who actually lives and works there* (in real life it's Belleek by name, bleak by nature). He has claimed personal credit for the election result in still marginal Fermanagh & South Tyrone: his elderly aunt died just before the last GE, so the entire UUP-supporting extended family sat it out as a mark of respect.

                                            * furlough at Belleek Pottery likely not to be extended alas

                                              There is nothing remotely original or remarkable about this. It's what many people had always heavily suspected. To see it in print, and with statistical back up, that many British business owners voted to leave the EU without understanding the consequences doesn't even make me angry any more, although it should. It makes me despair.
